‪We had an enjoyable boat ride in the Pottuvil lagoon. Beautiful serene place to visit. By talking to the villagers understand hardly any visitors due to the pandemic.‬

‪Fabulous lagoon boat excursion amongst the mangroves...‬
ספט׳ 2020
‪An amazing lagoon boat ride with Capt. Jamaldeen and his partner Samsudeen Bawa. A rare experience to navigate through the Mangroves and see Elephants, Crocodiles and Eagles in their natural habitat. A must do if you visit Pottuvil as proceeds from the excursions go to support local families. Keep rowing Gentlemen, Heroes of the Lagoon !‬

‪Beautiful lagoon with lots of elephants, birds and crocodiles‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪If you go early morning or in the evening you will see plenty of birds, elephants and crocodiles. A boat tour can be organized from a roadside agent for 4000/- from Arugambay. The cost includes a 24 Km three wheeler ride (up and down) plus the boat safari.

I had a car therefore the hotel advised me to go directly to the boat mooring place and pay for the tour which should only cost 3000/-. There are no price charts at the ticketing office. The president of the boat society (who was a crook, I later found from the boatman) was at the ticketing counter and said I had to pay 4000/-. I explained to him since I arranged my 24 km transport up and down the cost should b be only 3000/- but the crook still insisted that I have to pay 4000/-. Moral of the story. Don't arrange your own transport. Do it via the road side stall and let the three wheeler driver earn 1000 otherwise even if you arrange your own transport the president of the society will still charge you 4000/-.

The boatmen are lovely people who are mostly farmers or fishermen at day time. The society president runs the business as the way he wants. There are 50 boatmen, they get turns. On the days we were there at least 10-15 boat trips were done daily which means a boatman would get his turn every 5 days. But our boatman said his last turn was 12 days ago. I explained the math to him and said it can't be. He said, he knows it too but the president of the society does not display the roster and gives more turns to his few cronies and once when the boatman pointed it out he didn't get a turn for 2 months.‬

‪Relaxing sunset with lots of animals!‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪You will see elephants, exotic birds, and maybe even a group of buffalo bathing or crocodile! The lagoon can get hot and humid, but the sunset is nice and relaxing there. ‬

‪This is something every tourist must go on. Amazing experience. But the country really has to deal with proper garbage disposal. Otherwise this all going to vanish for soon.‬

‪Nice trip, you can also book direct‬
חברים • פבר׳ 2019
‪We were 2 friends and booked the trip through our hotel for 4000 rupees total. However if you have your own transport you can go direct to the society and the boat trip costs 3000. There phone number is +94 763075516. I was told a tuk tuk would charge 1000 rupees to drive you back and forth plus waiting from Aurgam Bay. Elephants only come according to our driver at certain times of the year. And we went on an afternoon trip but the driver told us crocodiles are spotted in the morning. Very pleasant trip.‬
